Bible commentary

Discussion for Isaiah 55:9

  • God's thoughts and ways are so much higher than ours that there are some things that we can't understand. The way we might think and reason on a matter is so inferior when compared to God's way of doing things. It is truly humbling to meditate on the meaning behind this verse.
